You will experience a combination SEA & AIR Tour as we begin as a boat and takeoff into the air in our seaplane. We takeoff and land from the water just north and west of Avalon. We operate with a “GOOD NEIGHBOR” policy – if there are several sailboats or motor boats near us on the water, we patiently wait for them to move clear of our takeoff or landing path. Frequently we will water taxi the seaplane far enough away as to keep well clear of other vessels and to keep our takeoff noise to a minimum. We have operated commercial seaplanes over three decades and have never had a boater complain that we were too close or too noisy.
The air above the Pacific Ocean is usually calm and cool as we soar through the skies with the trusted skills of one of our experienced pilots. Our Seaplane Air Tours are inherently safe as we are over the water for just about the entire flight. We have maintained a perfect safety record and have never harmed a passenger or lost a seaplane. Passengers enjoy the confidence in our well maintained aircraft and highly skilled and trained pilots.
The many sights of Catalina Island include spectacular sea cliffs, clear blue water and the picturesque town of Avalon. During our seaplane adventure you will see unparalleled views of secluded coves and beaches and sights unique to Catalina Island. We offer an unforgettable experience that you will treasure forever. Single passengers will need to be scheduled with other groups. A single couple will usually be combined with other passengers. Or you can choose to book a seaplane just for your small group for an additional fee. Reserve your memorable flight today. You may even find your own private paradise.
